Cannot find steam_api.dll

I keep getting "cannot find steam_api.dll" whenever I try to start AVA. I tried starting from the NWZlauncher, steam and AeriaIgnite but nothing works. Can I get some help here??

Did you download it from the aeria client while steam was up? My suggestion is to check in (drive):/aeriagames/ava to see if the steam_api.dll is there. If it is not, you have two options. You can either uninstall ava and disable steam client for about a few hours or a day, then download ava through the aeria client or you can download steam_api.dll file and use regsvr32 to register the dll.

If the steam_api.dll file is there, you can use the regsvr32 commands to register it and should resolve the issue.

regserver prompt codes and examples in the link below if you decide to do it manually.

I checked in the Aeria folder and I saw no steam_api.dll, but I think I will uninstall and download AVA again tomorrow.

when you do, please make sure steam client is disabled for a better and more effective download.

I like it when things work out for poeple. Means more people in the game to play with. Good luck and have fun!
